Jupiter Olympus: Cocktails from the Crypt
|A selection of drinks from the last Jupiter Olympus|
When: Sun., Oct. 30, 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
Cost: $10 per cocktail; 21 and over
The rundown: Jupiter Olympus, the innovative cocktail pop-up project by barmen Morgan Schick (NOPA, Michael Mina, Clock Bar) and Eric Quilty (Adesso) returns to Acme Bar in Berkeley this weekend for a Halloween edition. The drink list includes a butternut squash and rum punch (free at the event, by the way), a corn whiskey cocktail with candy corn, and a drink chilled with dry ice -- you know you need a bubbling cocktail. These drinks are so spooky that they'll scare the sober right out of you.
